Under the authority of 42 U.S.C. 217a, Section 222 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended, SACHRP was established to provide expert advice and recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, through the Assistant Secretary for Health, on issues and topics pertaining to or associated with the protection of human research subjects.
The Subpart A Subcommittee (SAS) was established by SACHRP in October 2006 and is charged with developing recommendations for consideration by SACHRP regarding the application of subpart A of 45 CFR part 46 in the current research environment.
The Subcommittee on Harmonization (SOH) was established by SACHRP at its July 2009 meeting and charged with identifying and prioritizing areas in which regulations and/or guidelines for human subjects research adopted by various agencies or offices within HHS would benefit from harmonization, consistency, clarity, simplification and/or coordination.
The SACHRP meeting will open to the public at 8:30 a.m., on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, followed by opening remarks from Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director of OHRP and Dr. Stephen Rosenfeld, SACHRP Chair.
The SAS and SOH subcommittees will present their recommendations regarding the description of “key information,” as required by the revised Common Rule at § 46.116(a)(5)(i). This will be followed by a discussion of the application of the revised Common Rule's exemptions at 46.104(d) to FDA-regulated research, and recommendations on the interpretation of § 46.104(d)(1) and (2) for HHS funded research.
The Wednesday, July 11, meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. The SAS subcommittee will present and discuss recommendations on the interpretation of “reasonably available” at § 46.408(b), as well as discuss issues surrounding payment to subjects for participation in research. Modifications to the previous day's work will be discussed and finalized. The meeting will adjourn at approximately 4:00 p.m., July 11, 2018.
Time for public comment sessions will be allotted both days. On-site registration is required for participation in the live public comment session.
